Philadelphia Magazine Real Weddings: Amber & Zack Fernandes / by Lauren Johns

From the bride: “After a whirlwind engagement that surprised everyone, we opted for a low-cost DIY wedding at the Maas Building and 5th side. Philadelphia is where we first met and found our favorite restaurants, including High Street on Market where we had our rehearsal dinner. The Maas Building provided the perfect informal space for our 80 guests and Pitruco Pizza and Philadelphia Brewing Company beer were big hits. The event was one big celebration of a Philadelphia romance and all local vendors!”
